Wondering if anyone knows how to stop traps agent on mac?

The only way we could stop traps was to run the uninstall, perform the task that was halted by traps and reinstall.

Try this command:


cd /Library/Application\ Support/PaloAltoNetworks/Traps/bin/
sudo ./cytool runtime stop all

Sometimes I find you have to run this command to get cytool to run correctly. Haven't figured out why.

sudo ./cytool rpc enable all



Please see the reference in the admin guide:

RPCs are used by the Traps agent and daemons to access persistent databases, change log levels, and connect or disconnect from the ESM Server.


We are looking into enhancing this flow in a future version.




That explains why it's needed before running the check-in command. 


Can I request that the cytool runtime start command matches the Windows equivalent? Adding all to the macOS side drives me insane!
